“As promised the rest of our troops in Iraq will come home by the end of the year. After nearly nine years, America's war in Iraq will be over”
"Today I can say that troops in Iraq will be home for the holidays."
Policy in Afghanistan - Bin Laden dead, Al Qaeda routed.
Policy in Libya - No U.S. casualties, low operational cost, Gadhafi killed.
Policy in Iraq - A decade of war finally ending, soldiers home for Christmas.
It's been a good week for the president, the culmination of a successful foreign policy that has seen the destruction of our greatest terrorist adversary, the death of a maniacal and anti-American dictator, the liberation of a nation and the end of the longest and financially costliest war in our nation's history. I can't top that, so I'm just going to say that I can't wait to see my friends in the military come home for good to be with their families and loved ones. I can't wait for the focus to shift from building other nations to rebuilding our own. It's a great way to end a historical week.
